All you need to do is check the numbers to realize how stupid people are getting. There has been a gradual decrease in average intelligence since the 1960`s. At the current rate in the next 50-60 years the average American`s IQ will be so low they will literally fall into the classification of being mentally retarded.

People are pretty much being engineered this way from birth. It`s a system that has been relied upon by major corporations for decades, they want you fat and stupid. Smart people tend not to buy things based on a funny commercial on TV. Dumb people on the other hand, will rush down to the store and strip the shelves bare. This fact becomes crystal clear every year during the Christmas shopping season. People trampling each other to death for a toy that will be sitting in a landfill by the same time next year.

I haven`t read (and never will) 50 Shades of Grey, Gerry, but I`d buy your book :D

I`m gonna write "51 Shades of Green"
I`ll do anything for money. And 51 has to be better than 50, right?

I`m actually frustrated because I myself write saucy fanfiction--but I`d never dare publish it. I know it`s not even close to being worthy to be bound and sold. Ug. These people don`t deserve money or fame >_<

No suprise. Some of the most popular media, especially film, appears to have been written by adolescent troglodytes. Best of luck to anyone who can make a buck in the trash fiction genre.

First it`s Fifty Shades of Gray and now it`s this. And people wonder why nobody reads books anymore.
